Further profligacy

#1
MOD has just revealed that it has spent close on £1.9 million to date in defence of its nuclear testing programme. This is the amount paid to civilian counsel alone. Its army of civil servants supplying details to the High Court case will be infinitely more. The charade continues. How much more will be paid?- Who knows---.
but certain QC's on the case will be planning their retirement on St Kitts and Nevis or wherever.

The MOD pursued a similarly expensive court case in defence of the Porton Down Guinea Pigs class action, only to lose ingloriously at vast expense to taxpayers.

They will lose again ,but this time the costs will be significant. Money for much needed new warships ---lining Silks' purses. "Ouch!"

Who knows indeed, Mr. Grantham. Perhaps you can enlighten us..? :sleepy:
And serious debate is called for?
This sort of banal response weakens RR's attempt at seriousness . Seriousness? Perhaps you can enlighten us.

I actually work as a postman.

The pay isn't great, but anything addressed to 'Cash 4 Gold' is a good bonus.

Debate?

Sorry, Norman, you seem to find it very hard to take it all in but not many biters at RR are rising to take debates you keep dangling.

:idea: Why not just cut your losses and go and dribble elsewhere?

You are right.Fewer and fewer with any vestige of fire in their belies. That's Britain today.

Not sure what that is but when someone suggested age and colostomy I was reminded of La Colestomy a few miles south of Panama City. The Coxn and I enjoyed (?) this sweet young thing, a carrot and a mule, performing the most unspeakable of things. Never been able to eat carrots since.
